Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

My king-sized sheets (only thing in load) are getting tangled in a ball in the dryer and not getting dry.


This is pretty common with lighter fabrics and is easily remedied. Put several new tennis balls in with the sheets to keep them from balling up. There are commercial products that do the same thing, but tennis balls are much less expensive.

My dryer is taking three cycles to dry clothes and its only 2 yrs old. Air flow looks good and lint has been cleaned out. Any suggestions?


Yes, check the hose behind the machine. Pull the drier out away from the wall pull the vent hose off and make sure it is clear, then look at the connection on the back of the drier and the vent at the wall, go outside and look at it for birds nest or kids putting tennis balls in it.

Is there anyway I can prevent sheets and blankets from getting wrapped into a ball as this prevents drying


You can put one or two tennis balls in with them. There are also dryer "balls" that stores sell but tennis balls work too!

My whirlpool gas dryer will not heat. It only spins.


If the dryer won't heat but does run, it is more likely to be the gas ignitor assembly, assuming there is gas available to the dryer. If the thermal fuse was bad, the dryer wouldn't start at all.

Dryer drum stopped rotating, dryer blower continues to work.


The belt probably broke, and coincidentally happened while drying the shoes. The belt is easy to replace. Open the back and you'll probably see the belt laying on the bottom

Dryer does not release any heat


Is yours the gas model? If so I need you to look for some things. Open back door panel and see if while trying to light the igniter is glowing orange. Sea Breeze
